Context


    USIR is an Open Access database, showcasing research output from the University of Salford.
    It is open to any staff member who produces research and is part of a linked global network of
    over 1,500 repositories.

    USIR has been developed by The Library, with the support of Pro Vice Chancellor for Research
    and Innovation, Professor Ghassan Aouad; the Research and Graduate College and more
    recently the Vice Chancellor, Professor Martin Hall, who is an advocate of Open Access
    developments and of disseminating Salford’s research outputs to wider audiences.

    USIR enables the capture and preservation of the University’s intellectual assets, and is part of
    the growing Open Access initiative increasingly required by the major research funding bodies. It
    is an example of how Open Access principles can make publicly funded research more easily
    available.

    On 1st January 2010 Salford was the 100th institution to become an Open Access university.
    The mandate requires a record of all new research output to be deposited in USIR and currently
    applies to all peer reviewed journal articles. The deposit of other research output is strongly
    encouraged.

    This report seeks to provide its readers with an overview of the number of deposits made to
    USIR, together with some information on the most popular pieces of research in the collection.
    The Library will make this report available on a monthly basis, enabling you to follow the
    progress that Salford makes with its Open Access mandate.


    Thank you for your interest.
    The USIR Team
